BT Payphone kiosks up and down the country have been transformed into some really exciting projects. With everything from art galleries to libraries now up and running, you might be surprised what you can do with a disused kiosk.

So what does your local community need? For some inspiration take a look at our case studies:

Defibrillator points
The Community Heartbeat Trust is campaigning to install lifesaving defibrillators in kiosks in rural areas, where ambulance response times can be slow, and is training local people to use them.

World's smallest art gallery
The people of Settle, in North Yorkshire, turned their adopted kiosk into one of the quirkiest art galleries in the country. Supported by Queen legend Brian May, the Gallery on the Green houses photographs, poetry, paintings and fabric pictures and has become one of Settle's best attractions.

Community book exchange
Villagers in Westbury-sub-Mendip in Somerset got together to turn their old phonebox into a library. The Book Exchange now has more than 150 books and DVDs in the tiny kiosk and has become a real focal point for the community, and beyond; worldwide media coverage has seen book donations coming in from all over the world.
